U.S. cable net RLTV has secured rights for two documentaries from Maryland-based Renegade Productions, as part of a development deal for future documentaries and specials for the network.
RLTV, which bills itself as the “only cable network and online destination for Generation 50+,” will air the hour-long doc A Shortstop in China, which follows baseball legend Cal Ripken Jr. as he heads to China on a diplomatic mission for the U.S. state department. The doc premieres on RLTV on March 1.
The network is also airing the prodco’s In the Face of Evil: Reagan’s War in Word and Deed this evening (February 6). The film, airing in honor of President Ronald Reagan’s birthday, examines Reagan’s “40-year confrontation with communism.”
RLTV chief content officer Elliot Jacobson said in a statement that Renegade “brings years of experience and maturity to their productions; they are a great fit for us and we look forward to future collaborations.”
